Founded in 1938, the Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) is the oldest and largest non-profit association representing Colorado’s statewide network of current and emerging public health professionals, businesses and organizations.
We are an active, dynamic and growing organization that aspires to be the Voice of Public Health in Colorado.
Public health is a Big Tent! We are not just healthcare professionals, local public health officials, researchers or academics.
Any individual, agency, nonprofit organization, company or others working to promote public health–including healthcare, wellness, nutrition, food safety, physical activity, the environment, outdoor recreation, clean water, sustainable and healthy communities–you are part of the public health community, too!
Good for the health & prosperity of Colorado’s women, children and our State!
By investing a small amount of state funds in a long-standing, effective program, we can:
- Support the health and well-being of women and children by reducing unintended pregnancies,
- Empower women to attain their education goals, helping create financially secure and strong families,
- Lower the abortion rate, and
- Reduce the number of people using Medicaid benefits and other public assistance programs.
